Boston, MA - Color Kinetics Incorporated (NASDAQ: CLRK), a leading innovator of intelligent LED lighting systems and technologies, today announced its results of operations for the fourth quarter of 2006.

Revenues were $18.2 million, an increase of 25% from the $14.5 million reported in the fourth quarter of 2005. GAAP net income was $1.6 million or $0.07 per fully diluted share. Non-GAAP net income was $2.2 million or $0.10 per fully diluted share prior to non-cash charges of $639,000 associated with the FAS 123R accounting standard.

"We believe there's little doubt among industry leaders that LEDs will play an integral role in the future of lighting," said Bill Sims, President and CEO, Color Kinetics. "Our strong financial results reflect the exciting growth and adoption we're witnessing across multiple sectors - including newly expanded markets for our lighting systems, and the accelerating traction of our licensing program. We have held firm to an investment strategy that continues to deliver returns, whether through product line expansion, new engineering resources or on-going patent prosecution - all intended to help drive continued top- and bottom-line success in the longer term."

"Today there is heightened awareness of the potential for energy-efficient lighting to help conserve resources and spare the environment. We believe such increased attention to the matter, along with continued research, development and government funding, will help set the stage for an eventual transition to LED technology as the right long-term solution," said Sims. "As the market opportunities for LED lighting continue to grow, Color Kinetics is preparing in parallel to lead the transformation forward through important new technologies, systems and strategic partnerships."

Additional 2006 achievements included:

  • The completion of a successful follow-on public stock offering
  • The unveiling of new landmark installations such as LAX Gateway at Los Angeles International Airport, the London Eye, and feature film Deck the Halls
